 MIT 21H.931 Seminar in Historical Methods, Spring 2004  MIT OpenCourseWare Instructor: Prof. Anne McCants This course is designed to acquaint students with a variety of approaches to the past used by historians writing in the twentieth century. The books we read have all made significant contributions to their respective subfields and have been selected to give as wide a coverage in both field and methodology as possible in one semester's worth of reading. We examine how historians conceive of their object of study, how they use primary sources as a basis for their ac...
